Policy 2-H – Holidays

 

ACTION

 

COMMENTS

The policy was revised to treat part-time, permanent employees working 20 or more hours per week, the same as full-time, permanent employees in relation to holiday pay for holidays that fall on a regularly scheduled work day.  The policy was also revised to correct verbiage relating to holiday time granted when the designated holiday falls on an employee’s scheduled day off.

 

 

ADDITIONS

 

 

·         Regarding time granted to an employee when a holiday falls on an employee’s scheduled day off, the term “compensatory” has been changed to “floating holiday”

 

 

 

·         Paragraphs delimiting use of additional floating holidays granted when a holiday falls on employee’s scheduled day off were added

 

·         The approved practice has been to grant floating holidays to ensure all employees receive the same number of holidays per year, even though they may not be observed on the same day.  This revision brings the verbiage in the policy into compliance with the approved practice.

 

·         The additional paragraphs ensure the use of floating holidays earned as a result of holidays granted when a holiday falls on an employee’s scheduled day off is consistent with use of floating holidays granted when holidays fall on mandatory employee work days.

DELETIONS

 

 

·         The term “Eligible” has been removed from the policy, as related to part-time, permanent employees working 20 or more hours per week

 

·         The phrase “have been employed for at least one (1) year” in relation to part-time permanent employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week has been deleted from the policy

 

 

 

 

 

·         The deletion removes the penalty of no holiday pay for part-time, permanent employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week, but have been employed less than one year, granting them the same (pro-rated) holiday pay as full-time, permanent employees, when a holiday falls on a regularly scheduled work day
